I think this movie is just slightly under Iron Man 2 in terms of quality, but I enjoyed that movie more than most people, so thats not an insult. This is a very fun and entertaining movie. I voted above average.
I'm glad to see there are at least a few other people who feel the same way.

I dunno, when I go to an Iron Man film, I have a certain expectation of seeing Stark as Iron Man. And I felt like we got less of Iron Man and more of just Tony Stark running around like an action hero.

Re: "Iron Man 3" Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)

I just rewatched IM3 after buying the Blu-Rray. The Walmart I was at was completely sold out of the movie on the racks, so I had ask someone to bring out a new copy from the back for me. I got the gold bordered cover version.

My original review for IM3 still stands. However, it would have been even been better if there was just a little less humor. I really love the movie's theme music. Funnily enough, I've started to notice how much Iron Man kept getting his ass kicked over the entire movie series. He has never beaten any of the lead villains on his own, Stark always needed some help to do it. I guess he is more of an inventor than a fighter.

The Agent Carter short was very cool. By far the best one shot so far.

Oh, yeah. It was great seeing Peggy again.

I'm loving all these shorts on the Blu-Rays!

They had copies on the racks in the one I went to, but not in the quantities I had expected, not for such a high-profile release.

Their employees just seem not to give a shit.

Got my IM3 BluRay, just chose a few items to watch tonight, have to be on the road to St.Louis early in the A.M.

Agent Carter One-Shot
What a well done short piece of film. There is enough set up in that 12min of footage to stage the TV series they rumored earlier this month. Lots to like, perhaps my favorite was the tight grouping of shots that allowed her to punch a hole in the door, delivering the tear gas. Her last line to Flynn was great. Treat this like a film....credit sequence.

B-I-K-I-N-I

The Gag Reel was fun as it should've been.

Exclusive Behind the Scenes of Thor Dark World mini-featurette. Short but with a few nice excerpts from the stars.

Not how works, sadly. Even though sales itself might look good, in general, sales of dvd's and blurays are going down. Piracy is at an all time high, and with people balancing their budgets, things like dvd's/blurays are less of a priority. In the store I work at, we've been seeing this development for a while now. I remember when HP4 came out on dvd, people were almost lining up. Now, when a big hit like the Hobbit is released, we usually don't even have to place a second order.

^A lot of people probably do legal downloads too. Pretty much every device has access to one or more of the downloading services, so I have a feeling a lot of people go that route these days.

Re: "Iron Man 3" Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)

I think JD hit the nail on the head there. When Walmart and Best Buy are basically saying "hey you know you can watch this movie NOW - weeks before it comes out on disk?" it's kinda silly to worry about how well the physical media is doing.

I'll say this - for the past 3 blockbuster BluRays I've bought - I've watched the Digital Copy before I've actually watched the disk. I know I was considering just buying the digital copy on Vudu but I would rather pay $25 bucks for the bluray,dvd,digital combo pack than $25 bucks for the digital only copy.

Let's face facts, digital media is slowly going away.

It's the very Tony Stark way of doing things...

Basicly the entire discussion in a nutshell. We knew this was going to come sooner or later. It's sooner then later appereantly.

We'll still be talking about the so-called death of physical media in a decade.

As much as I hate to sound like a smart ass, it's happening. I work in a store that sells a lot of media. And sales our down. And not just in our store, in the entire chain I work for.

Several chains of media stores in the Netherlands have gone bankrupt. Other stores that sell dvd/blurays have been seeing a steady decline for over a year now. This is a combination of the faltering economy and people being able to download movies illegally. With so many movies being between 15 and 20 euros on dvd or just over 20 euros for BR when they are just released, it's not strange that people will choose to buy things they actually need in stead of a luxury item they can life without.

And there in lies the rub; things they can life without. We, as fans of shows, types of movies, gamers, things like that.... we NEED these things, so we will keep on buying them, and since our biggest social interaction is with people we relate to and think the same way, we see no decline in sales of dvds/blurays, since everybody we know is buying IronMan 3, GTAV, the new Star Trek, the new BR release of that old show we all love.

But we are but a small group of people out there, and the rest of them are saying to hell with 22 euros for the Hobbit, I need new underwear, I'll download the Hobbit for free on a torrent later. It's not nice, it's illegal, but it's the truth.

Re: "Iron Man 3" Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)

Like Vinyl is dead, yet just saw it's biggest sales in a decade. I doubt physical media will disappear entirely but with services like Netflix, Playstation, Xbox, LoveFilm, iTunes etc where you can buy/rent/stream on demand and to your heart's content without waiting for delivery or going to the shops I think buying physical is either going to be very much impulse buy or specific special purchase in the longer term.

The thing with this on demand/renting stuff is: you can't keep it. Digital copies expire as well.

If you buy a DVD or blu ray, you keep it.

That's a big difference people are starting to find out recently. Just look at the recent PS4/XBox One rages when Microsoft wanted to prevent sharing of games.

Yep and things on Netflix and others only say there for so long. Things you want to be sure of you keep a copy.
